Crisp Most Likely Avoiding DL; Anderson, McCarthy, Braden On Road to Recovery

The Oakland Athletics have been fairing pretty well considering over half of their original starting pitching staff is on the DL at the moment. As things stand, Brett Anderson hasn't pitched since last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery last June 2011. Brandon McCarthy strained his shoulder in mid-June, and Dallas Braden has been out after undergoing shoulder surgery last May.

Finally, the Athletic's starting rotation is on the road to recovery and what everyone dreamed it would look like last year.

Also, it looks like Athletics outfielder Coco Crisp will be avoiding a trip to the DL after injuring himself swinging the back last Friday July 13th.

Slugger Yoenis Cespedes also might return to action tomorrow after injuring his thumb. He is considered day-to-day as well.
